Your Priddis Community Association has a number of items to note for this month’s edition of the newsletter. It really is exciting to watch our community come back to life after years of disconnection in the world!
Last month we hosted the 2022 AGM. Thank you to those that came out and welcome to our two new board members!
Winterfest is quickly approaching on February 4th. This event is free to the Priddis Community due to a very generous donation from Meota Gas Co-op. Bring your skates to the Priddis Rink from 4-7pm and enjoy refreshments, sleigh rides, bonfires and fellow community members. We will be accepting cash donations that will contribute to the refurbishment of the pickleball and tennis courts. Volunteers are needed. Please reach out to Karla (email@example.com) if you are able to help.
Speaking of pickleball, with just enough space inside the community hall for a court, we are going to try to host a league starting in February. If you are interested in joining this beginner/intermediate league, please attend our information night on January 24th, 7pm at the Community Hall. We will need a passionate community member to spearhead the program. Please RSVP to Karla (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in participating in pickleball.
On February 25th, PCA will be hosting a 4-on-4 shinny hockey tournament. Teams will consist of 4 players, a spare/sub and a goalie. Entry into the tournament is $150 with registration posting and opening on January 24th at noon. Space is limited to 8 teams with 4 games guaranteed. More information and registration can be found at: pca.getcommunal.com/parent_programs
We have had a request to host a playing card night at the hall. Do we potentially have a community member that would be willing to coordinate this event? The board will offer support but we will need more help. Please email Casey (email@example.com) if you are interested in volunteering.
We have already started to plan children’s summer camps at the community hall for 2023. It is our hope to have 4 weeks of camp for children ages 3-12. Overnight camp is also in the works! More details will be provided in the next month.
Last but definitely not least, from time-to-time the PCA receives suggestions of community members that deserve to be recognized for their significant contributions to Priddis. This year we received nominations (see attached) for Arlene Jelfs and Sue Warren to be awarded a lifetime honorary membership. We would like to congratulate and thank both Arlene and Sue. Your efforts have made, and continue to make, Priddis the community we all know and love.
